Londoners: Making Music

Through a crowd of faces, bodies, legs rushing across the bridge, a “ping, ping, ping” caught my ear. Ahead of me, this man was sitting on the ground, a pink toy guitar lying across his lap. He was plucking away, one string at a time, with the tip of a pen. I stopped to watch him and he grinned up at me. When I asked if I could take his photo, he nodded and then concentrated on playing louder. When I dropped a few coins into his hat, he clapped and nodded at me in thanks. I think this is my favourite photo I’ve taken since I’ve been back in London because it makes me smile when I look at it. He made my day.
